HELLA is a listed, international automotive supplier operating under the umbrella brand FORVIA. Within this group, HELLA stands for high-performance lighting technology and automotive electronics. At the same time, the company covers a broad service and product portfolio for the spare parts and workshop business, as well as for manufacturers of special vehicles with its Business Group Lifecycle Solutions. HELLA has 36,000 employees at more than 125 locations worldwide and generated sales of EUR 6.3 billion in the fiscal year 2021/2022.

Kaunas Free Economic Zone was chosen as the location for HELLA’s factory in Lithuania. After a construction period lasting a little less than a year, HELLA began production in 2018 across some 7,000 sq. m. of production space.

The plant began its operations with the production of printed circuit boards for lighting electronics. Step by step, the product portfolio has expanded to engine compartment actuators, radars, fuel pump control modules and position sensors. Further expansion in the site’s production will mainly be driven by new generations of radar sensors.
